OUR STORY //
Chris Lee and Marco Capobianco started to notice issues within themselves and their friendship circles involving lifestyle choices, mental health and risk taking behavior. They began carrying out preliminary and academic research to find out if these experiences were isolated incidents or if they involved a wider societal issue. Chris and Marco’s findings led them to conclude that a cultural change among young people was essential. Chris and Marco made it their life mission to create a cultural change. After many years as community workers, youth workers, professional public speakers and involvement in various leadership initiatives, the duo decided to start Conviction Group in 2014.
Over the last 3 years, Conviction Group has worked with thousands of students from over 70 schools through their forums, mentoring programs, and speaking engagements. Over this time, Conviction Group has built a team of over 120 volunteers, and has developed multiple community and corporate partnerships across NSW. Conviction Group is excited to continue informing, engaging and inspiring the young people across NSW.
